Is Afrin safe for Rosacea?... had bad results.

Recently I read about a dermatologist suggesting a patient use Afrin on rosaca. I decided to give it a try.

This is day 4 using Afrin in the mornings on my cheeks. It is now mid-day and my cheeks are a very BRIGHT RED. No doubt a rebound from the Afrin.

Last night I was so pleased with the light hint of blood vessels on my cheeks, thought I had found a miracle.

My cheeks will rival Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer for sure!

Has anyone else tried Afrin? Have you found something that really works?
Will Afrin raise blood pressure? Will Afrin affect the kidneys?

Re: Is Afrin safe for Rosacea?... had bad results.

After researching Afrin and systemic effects, below are things it can interfere with:

Blood glucose
Prostate
Cardiac issues
Thyroid
Hypertension

Yes, I know, should have researched Afrin before trying it, I am diabetic and have hypertension.
